One of the things I loved about the holiday season as a kid growing up in Wisconsin, was all of those days off from school that I could grab my sled, bundle up and head off to “hospital hill” and sled until my toes and fingers were going to fall off. It never failed, after a day of crashing into snow piles I would come home cold and starving half to death.

The past few years, we did much of the same with my own kiddos up there in Alaska.


I love making these memories and sharing these traditions with my own family.


And just like when I was a kid, after spending a day tromping up hills and digging snow out of our mittens, we all come home freezing and starving half to death! After a day of that, you want something warm and yummy to fill your tummies and you want it yesterday. This dish fits the bill. I have shared a recipe here that has all of the loveliness of comfort food, but without the need for you to spend a great deal of time in the kitchen – Fettuccine with Italian Sausage and creamy Mascarpone.

Fettuccine with Italian Sausage and Mascarpone from The Foodie Army Wife

To begin, start a pot of boiling salted water, and cook your fettuccine al dente while you prepare the sauce.

Meanwhile, melt a tablespoon of butter in a skillet.


Toss in a half pound of spicy Italian sausage and cook it until it is slightly brown, and cooked through.


Pour in a half cup of Gallo Chardonnay.


Add in 8 ounces of Mascarpone cheese and 1/3 cup heavy cream.


Stir and melt this all together, and add in a teaspoon of fresh ground black pepper.


Let it simmer for a couple minutes on low heat.


Place your cooked fettuccine in a serving dish, pour the sauce over and toss to coat.


Top with a good amount of shredded parmesan cheese.


That’s it!


Enjoy your pasta with a glass of wine, friends and family.
